I made it to Walter Kelly's garden in Tombrick today. This is just around the corner from me so I really had no excuse for not getting there sooner.
It is lovely. What a dense planting - the number of plants in Walter's garden is phenomenal. He told me that, because of the denseness of planting he only has to spend an hour a week weeding. I see the light at the end of the tunnel!
Highlights for the kids were the ornamental foul at the beautiful duck pond. Also when Sammy touched an electric fence and the shock passed through him into his brother and father as they were all holding hands. They thought this was hilarious.
Highlight for me, after visiting the garden and getting advice from Walter, was a few purchases - a large Cunningham White Rhododendron, Catalpa Tree, Viburnum Snowball, Libertia, Diacentra Alba & Red Salvia. All very reasonably priced.
